Post XP Chaos

8.1 has absolutely no rhyme or reason. I worked with EAM equipment and Mainframes with bootstraps and tape drives in the 60s. My learning curve is now turn on my PC and do stuff. I need a hands on PC "Personal Shopper" service. I browse. I don't play video games. Yet lag seems the order of the day, script errors all the time, and constant "program" not responding messages. I have the paper delivered every day. My PC works like going out for the newspaper and not knowing which location has the paper each day. I need a service that will maintain my PC.

Crisp Response

Do PCs still have the instantaneous response the 486 586 PCs used to have?

Re: slow PC

Script errors can have many causes (and not all can be influenced by you), but the easy solution for them popping up is to disable the popping up in the browser settings.

Now go back to factory settings (reset or refresh Windows), and you'll notice that your PC is as fast as it used to be when you bought it. Then don't install malware and other programs you don't use, and all will be fine.
